The split-toe, or "tabi," has in recent years seen a resurgence, no longer reserved for wetsuit boots. It has, however, still proved controversial, attracting as much ire as it has curiosity. With the BITA-V, Suicoke have developed a split-toe design shoe that fits perfectly into the more eclectic end of their ever-growing catalogue.
With improbable beginnings making small accessories and Russian dolls, since their founding in 2006, Suicoke have quickly become the world's number one premium sandal maker. In recent collections, the cult Japanese label have shown continued ambition, expanding their range of strap sandals and slides while experimenting with shapes that test the boundary between sandals and closed footwear, seeking out a series of high-profile visionary collaborators for the ride. This collection presents a number of classic shapes in new and trusted colourways, as well as fresh additions to the Suicoke line-up.
